Help with wifes 04 expedition. no help from gassers section.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

wife's exp makes almost a metal on metal sound when she lets off the brake which seems to sound like it's a rotating sound we just got the alignment done at the dealer recently. other than that it runs tip top. She's got 47,500 miles on it. I also noticed a shiny spot on the inside of the drivers side dust cover as if rotor was hitting it any ideas would be appreciated. thanks

Dust shield is about 99% the culprit, bend it out.

already bent it out on the front driver and passenger side. it sounds like the noise a big overhead garage door makes while its going up the track. it goes away when we get up to speed it's frustrating as sh*t though. could it be that something needs oiled in the the driveshaft? maybe the calipers are hanging up after she lets off the brakes?

Take the tire off and check out the brake pads. A freind had one and the pin holding the pads in place loosened up and caused the pads to constantly rest against the rotor. Sounding just like you are describing...

No problem man, I am willing to put money on it though that is the quick fix... good luck and check the rotor for damage, my freinds had to be resurfaced due to the constant rubbing. Hopefully you caught it in time though

Yeah, I'd definitely check out the pads. Could be a pin, or one of the little clips that spreads the pads apart. Squeaky breaks are way annoying.

Can anyone tell me what part I need to fix this or how to describe to the dealership if necessary? (Passenger side on the four wheel drive unit closer to the wheel)
